equal to 100 percent of the donations that is an $80,000 from the city. the city has asked spur to be the project manager for this work because of the most recent success if managing a similar grant involving multiple federal and state and local partners to the effects of erosion along ocean beach. and it has a tight schedule and requires the coordination and also the interest in building upon the proposed partnership as we develop and implement the city rise, and there are elements that we will need that are reflected here and non-profit partnership and building upon the prior work in this case and in the excellent science and to facilitate the development of the grant, funds, and the city, through

>> good afternoon commissioners i am really excited about this study, wearing two hats and i live on mission creek and so the sea level rise is an immediate concern, and i also with the committee and we have spent many years working on developing the mission bay project and the port owned parks all around the shore line. and knowing how we can adapt to rising tides is a critically important piece.
2:06 am
>> thank you. >> any other public comment, and comments from commissioners? no. sorry. >> sue, and i am glad that you are tackling and not going to
2:07 am
become republican naysayers, i want to point out that you have the jurisdiction along the shore line. i want to remind you what you did a couple of minutes ago. that see wall is in the flood season and at 330, and the other sea wall are all to flooding and sooner or later the port has to deal with lands that they own on the other side of the embarcadero as well as the piers.
2:08 am
>> i am going to pay attention to these studies as well and i would just put out your schedule, and for awarding the warriors, is they have a lease that will end in 2080. and you look at this, and this is between, 10 to 17 inches, and 2050 and 31 to 69 by 2100 and so just kind of split the difference. and we have a big problem. and the port has toto as we
2:09 am
2:10 am
undertake it and we have to keep it in mind and we appreciate the public comment that the rarina has to take that into consideration and we want to keep this in the forefront and we as a commission have asked the staff to keep us updated periodically not only with the study but with anything else that we can. and i think that i also want to point out not just with spur. we are working with bcdc and i recently had the opportunity to talk with the chairman.
2:11 am
and this is as you know, one of the number one priorities and i think >> if we do our seven and a half miles and the others don't, that snot going to happen. i think that is critical to the future, and the safety of the city of san francisco and for the city and for the port. >> obviously, and i am delighted that all of these different agencies and departments are chiping in, and to help out with this study and i think that it is very, very important. and the more that we, the more, valid that we get, and we get from this, and we can sometimes, some time in the future, formulate the plan, and
2:12 am
what we are going to do about it. and i have seen something in there, where there is a dutch company? yeah, and they are... and they are the experts in that field. and for any of you, who have been to amsterdam they have done a great job keeping the water on for many years and so we need all of the experts and how are we are going to get them we are going to fund them. i am delighted. >> thank you. >> well, all in favor? >> aye. >> okay. resolution, number 1 3-47 has passed. >> okay. >> and item 11, new business? >> okay, i want to raise just one topic of new business in response to a comment that was made during and that is i am not going to read the statement but i think that i just want for the public record to be noted that the port did issue a
2:13 am
public statement about 8 washington. and renee martin did put out a statement in terms of opposition and i think that we should refer to that statement and i would ask you to just put that in the record in terms of what our response. and so it isn't that we didn't respond, we did make a comment on 8 washington in the ballot initiative and that should be for the record as well. >> okay. >> thank you. >> will do. >> any other items for new business? >> yes? >> yeah. i would like next month to, and so we can get an update on where they are at with the negotiations between metro and the port, and the iow and kind of get an update on where they are going, and before it comes to the full port commission and have they sat down and where is that, thank you. >> okay. >> okay. >> any other items? >> commissioners? >> okay. >> and then i have the motion for adjournment? >> seconded. >> all in favor. >> aye. >> thank you. >> we are adjourned. >> thank you. >>
